“You gain a lot of experience and you get to know people from all around the world and, What we learned in this diploma – you can apply to everyday life – it was a great experience all around.”
During the work term portion of my International Trade Diploma I learned the importance of being proactive, seeking out additional information when necessary, and attention to detail. I gained hands-on, practical knowledge, the work environment was positive and encouraging, and I made valuable contacts in the trade industry. I would absolutely recommend Ashton’s International Trade program to others, and strongly encourage students to complete a work term during their education. You get back what you put in; work terms are as rewarding as you choose to make them.
